Our Church Family: Michael and Marianne Botting’s home in northern Uganda was destroyed by fire on Monday. No one was hurt and many of their possessions were rescued – we praise God for that, but much was also lost and they will need to find or build a new home. Emmanuel International has set up a link for donations to a Fire Recovery Fund on their website https://www.eicanada.org/product/botting-fire-recovery-fund/ You can also give through Maranatha as long as you note it is for the EI Fire Recovery Fund. Their prayer cards are available at the Info Desk.
